2017 FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: DAVID WRIGHT ALMOST CERTAIN TO BEGIN SEASON ON DL, MAY NEVER RETURN

Only two games manning the DH spot in spring training games, New York Mets third baseman David Wright reported discomfort in his shoulder that soon was diagnosed as an impingement.  The Mets sent Wright back to New York to be examined further but team sources are already saying he is certain to begin the 2017 season on the disabled list.  Wright's absence creates some moving parts on the Mets infield as Jose Reyes will now be the starting third baseman Opening Day and Lucas Duda's continued back problems also is adding to the turmoil.  With Wright so far losing his battle against spinal stenosis, there is also the idea permeating around Mets circles that retirement could be on the horizon.  While that is a topic for another day, anyone who had any interest in Wright in NL-only formats should obviously move on.  It is looking like a brutally sad ending to the career of one of the good guys in the game.
